A total of 22 Cryptosporidium isolates from human immunodeficiency virus-infected patients from Kenya, Switzerland, and the United States were examined at three genetic loci: the 18S ribosomal DNA, HSP-70, and acetyl coenzyme A synthetase genes. Four distinct Cryptosporidium genotypes were identified: (i) the Cryptosporidium parvum "human" genotype, (ii)(More)

Although the aetiology of SIDS remains a mystery, it seems likely that certain stresses such as infection, overheating, and(More)
The widespread use of mammography has made the detection of increasingly small, often impalpable, invasive breast carcinomas possible. An enhanced understanding of morphological factors, among the foremost of which is size of invasive component of carcinoma, is changing the management of breast cancer To the uninitiated, the determination of size of(More)
Deciding whether in-situ breast carcinoma is associated with microinvasion is a common problem. Histological features resembling invasion can be simulated by in-situ carcinoma distorted by inflammatory and reparative changes. Having expended the effort to diagnose genuine microinvasion, just how useful is this diagnosis in planning further treatment and(More)
Leptospirosis is a disease caused by spp. Leptospira, also known as Weil's disease if it manifests with jaundice. It can be associated with respiratory, renal, hepatic and haematological complications and most importantly carries a high mortality when untreated. We describe a case of a 53 year old man presenting with myalgia and fever in whom the diagnosis(More)
Vibrio species are ubiquitous in the marine environment and can cause severe infections in cirrhotic patients. Patients with liver disease should be warned about the potential dangers of consuming raw or undercooked seafood, and avoiding exposure of wounds to seawater. We report a case of severe sepsis from Vibrio cholerae non-O1 in a patient with cirrhosis(More)
